I’ve been in touch with Darby, at Bullinger Photography, again. We’ve talked rather a bit over email about the special circumstances inherent in photographing a Wiccan handfasting ceremony and she’s been just wonderful about the whole thing. Her questions have been thoughtful and interesting. Himself and I are really quite pleased to be working with her. Both of us really are taken with her work… traditional, but not predictable and she does a very fine job of capturing the personalities of the bride and groom in her pictures, with warmth and sensitivity.
She also meets a few of our more fiddly requirements… she offers black & white and sepia tone photographs at no extra charge and she will sell us a CD of all the pictures (including all photo rights), for a reasonable fee.
We’ve received the contract this morning and will be putting the deposit down fairly sharpish. Now, we’re debating an engagement photo shoot… possibly someplace lovely in the summer, or maybe autumn…
